I dont think I have ever seen chrome ones unless someone had it done custom.

The most Ive ever seen them was painted to match the rest of the truck.

Ah that's too bad. I think that would really look killer with chrome vent visors.

I have chrome nerf bars, chrome grille, chrome bug deflector. All I need now is chrome handles, mirrors and vent visors.

Go to the place you bought your other accessories and ask them, I know I've seen them somewhere, like www.performanceproducts.com or somewhere, but they do make em.

chrome style vent visors were the norm back in the '80's, but they hindered your vision and when the truck styles changed, the visors changed to smoked plastic.

Contact Advanced Plating in Nashville, TN. http://www.advancedplating.com/ They can "chrome" plastic but it's not cheap but they do show quality work.

Speaking of chrome..anyone here remember that old school Mirror Tint?

It was window tint but when you put in on all you saw was your reflection.

I'll have to find some pictures.

I might settle for smoke ones and just get the chrome mirror caps instead.

Thanks for all the replies guys.

I love chrome and all but above the window I think it sticks out more like an eyesore.

heres the thing i dont get...chrome vent visors are so BLAH looking its the color of your truck then BAM! u got chrome...the key to a nice looking truck are subtle changes with your color tones or say...red truck black trim...black visors black tint and so forth make the truck "flow" and have large chunks of candy that are to eye appealing at first site. things like when people walk by your truck like...headlight mod...simple and very eye appealing but not to gaughty...know what i mean? why not color match your vent visors? ya they match the color of your truck but someone walking by will say..hey thats cool they match his truck and dont stick out like a sorethumb

So I was in town today and say a Chevy Silverado with chrome grill, chrome bug deflector, chrome mirrors, chrome door handles, chrome nerf bars and CHROME VENT VISORS.

I have to agree with the rest of you guys, even though I didn't want to, but it looks like crap. That was way to much chrome and chrome in the wrong place. So I'll take your advice and gonna get black vent visors and maybe paint them the truck color.

Thanks everyone for the responses.

have you considered putting chrome under the hood? I think that can look real sharp if done in moderation
